My work is about exploring the beauty of pattern and repetition to create one-of-a-kind, unique and abstract works on paper. I often think of my compositions as printed textiles.
My graphic design training and background directly informs my prints; with a strong use of geometric form, color palettes, tonal contrast and modern compositional elements. Having lived in Japan, I have been influenced and inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of balanced compositions, and the contemplative qualities that can be found in the harmonious rhythms of pattern. The collecting of textiles from my world travels has also been hugely inspirational.
I place a strong emphasis on experimenting with process, and pushing the boundaries of what is possible with different printmaking mediums. I experiment with new mark-making techniques; discovering ways of making impressions with unexpected materials, and ways of transferring, layering, and removing imagery.
